A new roguelike 2D action game will soon be launching on Switch this 2019.
Good Shepherd Entertainment and indie developer SuperScarySnakes have announced that Black Future ‘88 will be coming this year as a Switch-exclusive. Set in a grim alternate history where it’s always 1988, Black Future ‘88 places players on a non-stop dungeon-crawling ascent against homicidal robots, cutthroats, bosses and more to exact revenge on the man who destroyed the world.
The game will feature solo and two-player local co-op modes including special daily challenges to scale the global leaderboard.
Check out the trailer and details below:
Black Future ‘88 is constantly evolving to try to kill you. As one of the last remaining survivors of nuclear cataclysm, you’ll climb a procedurally generated tower through a merciless onslaught of fire, lasers and steel. The only way to kill your mark before your heart explodes is strategically choosing and combining dozens of unique buffs and curses. Choose from several characters with a huge arsenal of weapons and powers as you shoot, slash and dash through anything standing between you and the top of the world.
Black Future ’88 is a Synth-Punk roguelike 2D action Shooter. Vertically climb an always evolving procedural tower to reach the top and kill its insane owner…before your heart explodes. Shoot, slash, dash and upgrade yourself to survive the endless waves of deadly traps, homicidal AI, crazed junkies and colossal Wardens standing in your way in a stylish alternative version of 1988.
The world is reeling from a nuclear cataclysm, created by Duncan, the tower architect. The First of his bombs fell in the summer of 1988, and by December they had blacked-out the sun with endless rain. We decided to stop keeping time after this, and it’s been 1988 ever since. Everything that lived through the initial attack will die in the extreme floods that followed. These are the times after, where there are no more months, or even weeks…everything is measured in minutes left to live.
Take on the mantle of one of the last remaining misfit survivors, and fight your way to the top of the tower to kill the architect and stop the endless nuclear rain. Ascend to die, and die to survive.
